Is dev-platform for platform users or platform developers?
So since dev-tech-xpcom closed, there's been an awful lot of traffic
on dev-platform from platform users. I don't really have time to
read this, and it probably means I'll be paying less attention to
the platform developer traffic on dev-platform (if any at all; I'd
long since unsubscribed to dev-tech-xpcom until told to resubscribe
to follow the XPCOM memory management discussion).
Does this discussion belong on dev-platform, or should it be

Mozilla Corporation ...perl6-internals-unicode request
I've finally woken up and I now have 8 RFCs on Unicode handling I'm
about to throw at the librarian. While I'm perfectly happy to have them
disgust (sic.) here, I think it might be sensible to start up a WG for
discussing Unicode Things. I'm even fool enough to volunteer to chair it if
you like. What do you want to do?
 Don't tell anyone about the 26 RFCs that aren't on Unicode handling...

Hmm... I'm 99.9% ignorant on this subject, but doesn't this relate back to
past discussions of C--, the portable assembly language?
(www.cminusminus.org) I realize C-- isn't just immature, its premature...
But there are probably ideas to be gained by sifting through the projects
papers and code.

This may be the wrong forum to post this, but it has to
